Ever present to help HPD officers in need, Assist the Officer was able to provide $62,500 to officers suffering from home or vehicle damage from Tropical Storm Imelda.
And the story doesn’t stop there.
HPOU was able to provide $9,500 to officers who lost or suffered from personal vehicle damage as a result of the storm.
The National Fraternal Order of Police awarded up to $500 to officers that qualified for the FOP’s Disaster Relief program.
There were 41 applicants total for both home and/or car damage filed by HPD officers.
It was incredibly heartbreaking because a lot of the names were familiar from Hurricane Harvey and the flood in Kingwood at the beginning of 2019.
